If you’re considering plastic surgery like breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, or a facelift, it’s important to understand that the procedure you choose can be life changing. It can alter your appearance in a way that makes you more confident, which can improve many aspects of your life. However, it’s crucial that you have realistic expectations about the outcome of your surgery.  While plastic surgery can enhance your natural beauty, it generally can’t solve underlying self-image problems.

There are various ways to determine if your expectations are realistic about the plastic surgery you’re considering. Start by asking yourself why you want to alter your appearance. Is it to fight the effects of aging or to correct a bothersome feature? If so, then plastic surgery may be able to satisfy your needs. If it’s for another reason, like wanting to please your husband or wife, it’s possible the results of your surgery may fail to meet your expectations.

Another way to assess whether or not your expectations are reasonable is to consult with a plastic surgeon and share with him or her exactly what you envision for yourself. A good surgeon will tell you if what you are seeking is possible, as well as help you weigh the benefits and potential risks of the surgery. At Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, our Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald is available for a personal consultation. He has more than 20 years of plastic surgery experience and can use it to help you set realistic goals that can be successfully achieved with plastic surgery.
